Do ambidextrous people have an intellectual advantage over others?

I have not come across any study of ambidexterity as a firm correlate of IQ, one way or another.
For example, Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and Einstein were said to be ambidextrous. However, there are equally anecdotal reports of ambidextrous children doing more poorly in verbal, nonverbal, reading, and mathematical skills relative to right- and left-handers (third link below).
